Main modifications

The council ran a consultation on the main modifications to the pre-submission version of the Local Plan

The modifications make sure the plan is legally sound and address any issues raised by the Inspector and contributors to the examination.

The consultation ran from 12 March to 31 May 2020. We extended the deadline for responses by one month due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

As public buildings were closed, we offered to send hard copies of consultation documents on request to those who requested them, free of charge.

Consultation documents

The modifications were published for consultation in the schedule of main modifications (pdf).

A sustainability appraisal (pdf) and habitats regulation assessment (pdf) were also published and formed part of the consultation.

Now the consultation has closed, the Inspector will issue a final report and, if the Inspector considers the main modifications and other necessary modifications will make the plan sound, the changes will be made and the plan can be formally adopted by the council.

Other documents

We also published two other schedules:

These schedules did not form part of the consultation but were published for information.
